Become an MBCM Franchisee

For over 32 years MBCM Strata Specialists franchisees have been servicing the Victorian Strata and Bodies Corporate market. MBCM Strata Specialist franchisees continue to enjoy strong business growth, delivering a number of income streams which include management fees (which are paid quarterly in advance).

Our brand and our franchisees differentiate themselves from the rest of the industry on the basis of the quality of service that they provide to our clients, their accessibility as local operators and their access to proven processes/systems developed over many years. Our brand promise "Helping Strata Communities Thrive" reflects the synergy between our brand and our franchisees and it is truly unique in the strata industry.
We started as a family operated business and that family ethos continues today. Our exclusive territory franchise model means that your fellow franchisees are your colleagues not a competitor. 
 
MBCM Strata Specialists commenced in 1989 and started with our first franchisee in 1992. Today we are one of Victoria’s largest Owners Corporation / Bodies Corporate companies with 63 highly successful and prominent franchisees that are leaders in their own right, in their local communities across the state.

About the Strata Industry 
 
The strata management industry continues to lead the property services industry as it has proven extremely resilient during the global downturn with nearly 90% of all managers, nationally, reporting positive revenue growth during the GFC and COVID-19.  
 
The strata management industry has continued to enjoy year-on-year growth not only in Victoria but also across Australia as more and more apartment towers, apartment blocks and subdivisions of existing properties take place. With more than 95,000 Owners Corporations and in excess of 800,000 lots together with an increase in population within Victoria, the strata management industry will continue to enjoy strong growth. 
 
From our perspective, 100% of MBCM Strata Specialists franchisees have enjoyed revenue growth for many years with no signs of this changing. Such is the success of our model; we are almost 100% "home grown" with most franchisees having acquired their franchise from a family member or a friend.

Franchisee testimonials

"Many of the franchised businesses I looked at required a huge upfront and ongoing investment, and little protection from competitors and economic fluctuations. MBCM required a relatively smaller investment while offering growth in an ever-expanding market."
Greg Honeyman, Owner MBCM Strata Specialist Ballarat.

"For my family, I can say in all honesty that taking on this franchise was the best thing that ever happened to me... and now my son owns his own franchise."
Mark & Matthew Bourke, Owners MBCM Strata Specialists Kew, Doncaster and Greensborough.

"We started with a new franchise in a new area and we have grown the business considerably. We couldn't be happier with our business."
John and Dawn Bowers, MBCM Rosebud

We own two franchises, the City of Melbourne and also Northcote. This provides a blend of high rise clients, commercial, mixed use as well as older style strata properties - all of which are profitable. After fifteen years, the business is still growing and we are delighted with our investment."
Brendan Ryan, MBCM City & Northcote
